In Special Ti, you have two main ways to get grades. You should use both to get the highest ranks.

1) Each time you get a section COOL (this is achieved by getting a good section time, like clearing the 0-100 section with the time faster than 52 sec) you also get +1 grade. Try to get as much COOL's as you can, but each COOL will speed up the game and raise the difficulty.

2) Second system is like in Special, it's based on your score and uses point decay(it's a bit complicated). To get high score, you generally should try to play faster and make more tetrises. There is a combo multiplier; you can get a high combo and it will boost your score, but don't rely much on it.

When you clear 999, you are presented to a credits roll with pieces disappearing at a different pace based on how well you have played before. Making a Tetris during this time will boost your grade a bit, while clearing the entire roll boosts your final rank significantly.

I have to say that I find your layout quite awkward. Maybe you have monster hands, but I would rearrange what your left hand is doing. Hitting ctrl/shift (presumably with your pinky/ring) isn't the best especially when you also aim to hit the relatively distant space bar frequently (can stress your fingers). Similarly, having rotate above soft drop (both presumably hit with the middle finger) will make spins more stressful as your middle finger might need to do up to 3 consecutive actions. These issues aren't that important in pure sprinting though. But when you're doing a lot of spins/holding in multiplayer, you will be putting your fingers through some unnecessary work.

Hello,

Does anyone know how to get the replay links (with various modes) of personal best records on TF?

Thanks in advance.

@Icz74

One way to do it is to use JoyToKey.

@djackallstar

If you're trying to find the replays of a particular player, try using Google's "site:" operator. Type this into Google:

CODE
site:tetrisfriends.com hd_blink


You can replace "hd_blink" with any Tetris Friends username. The top link will usually be the player's profile page. From there, you can see his records. Click on "View Details" to watch replays. (If you're still having an issue, try disabling any ad blocker you have.) You can also view top records by navigating to "Community" > "Leaderboard."

Oops, it seems I didn't make the question clear...
What I want are direct links to watching replays without the need to click anything else.
It is because I want to show replays to my Japanese friends
who can't, or are unwilling to, read English at all.

Fortunately (!) by using the method you proposed, I was able to find such a link. (*1)
For example, if I want to let my friends see my best sprint replay, here is the link:
"http://www.tetrisfriends.com/leaderboard/ajax/user_stats.php?&username=Grand_Rookie&userId=4429980&productId=84"

The "username" parameter is optional. The username will be shown on top of the screen if provided.
The "userId" parameter is required, which is the unique identifier for a specific user.
The "productId" parameter is required, which determines which game mode to show,
and Its value can be found by viewing the raw HTML text in the corresponding game mode page.

Thanks again caffeine.

Quick Question: How would it be possible to cut down Piece dependencies? My problems are with I, J and L pieces.

That's actually a pretty complex topic. I covered it in one of my articles, though. Piece dependencies result mainly from a) disconnecting surfaces (towers and trenches), and b) creating surfaces that aren't amenable to all pieces (or, the little they do lead to awkward results). Towers, trenches, awkward surfaces, etc., in turn, lead to the need to create 2-deep (or higher) 1-column trenches. Those require I/L/J-piece to fix.

Try to pay attention to unnecessary disconnects (i.e. a difference in height between two surfaces greater than 1), while allowing a comfortable position for any given piece.

I am curious if anyone would like to coach me. I have plateaued more or less at rank 15 in TF. Currently learning finesse in Nullpo. I love C2.

I would mainly be interested in increasing my speed (improving my look ahead would probably do that, so, we can work on that). Sprint time is 1:06 (had a sub one minute before losing the record due to reinstalling my OS). I would like some feedback on my upstacking too.

I live in Texas, timezone is UTC - 6h. Please PM.

Thanks!

Edit: Maybe some feedback on my keyboard layout.

Left hand,
S: Hold with ringer finger
D: Rotate left with middle finger
F: Rotate right with pointer finger
Space: 180 rotate with thumb

Right hand,
J: Left with pointer finger
I: Hard drop with middle finger
K: Soft drop (maybe switch to hard drop?) with middle finger
L: Right with ring finger
Space: 180 with thumb

In Nullpo, is there a way to slow down a replay, or step through one piece/input/frame at a time? I noticed a "frame step" key in the options, but it doesn't seem to do anything when I hit it while watching a replay.

Maybe someone else knows better, but I haven't found a way. What I've been doing is recording the screen to a video file at 60fps. VLC, among others, let you frame step videos.

maybe a way to do this is to export it to a different player and then slow it down manually there?
